• "This is the saddest day in the 50 year history of UCC. Our hearts go out to every student, every employee, and every family touched by this tragedy.

    "I want to thank all of our friends and neighbors who have dropped everything to help us. Over the next weeks, we will come together to accept offers of help and care so that we can assist one another."

    -Dr. Rita Cavin
    UCC Interim President

    The Umpqua Community College Foundation is accepting donations online and by mail: https://www.umpqua.edu/scholarships-donations

    We strongly recommend that donors cast a careful eye when considering other funds, as some are not based at charitable organizations and might apply high administrative fees. Also, unfortunately, at times like these, there are unscrupulous people who will set up false accounts.

International Students

Congratulations! You've taken the first step toward an education in the United States of America. The people you will meet and the experiences you will have will change your life forever.

Many international students come to UCC to improve their English language skills. UCC's international students find they have more involvement with English speaking students and members of the community here, and learn the language more quickly than they would if they were living and associating with a large group of students from their own culture at a large university. 

Transfer Credit

International students need to have their credentials evaluated by a Credential Evaluation Service before credits can be transferred to UCC. This evaluation determines the United States education equivalent and provides a recommendation on how to award credit. Click on Credential Evaluation Services to find companies that provide this service and their cost information.
